Greetings OWN fans!
It’s been nearly 9 years since I was diagnosed with an incurable, stage IV cancer on Valentine’s Day in 2003. So much has changed since that time. I had no idea how much cancer would shape my life and my work. Because I’ve never had the opportunity to be treated, I made it my mission to learn as much about my body as possible. If I couldn’t be cured, perhaps I still could be healthy. But boy did I have a huge learning curve! I knew nothing about how to eat, manage stress, build my immune system or even how to be kind to myself. Cancer changed all that.
When the first doctor I spoke with suggested I undergo a triple organ transplant (I have tumors in both my lungs and my liver), I knew that wasn’t for me, and I’d have to learn how to be my best advocate and friend. I often tell people that I learned how to become the CEO of me. I hired, I fired, and I ultimately built my Crazy Sexy longevity team – a team of doctors and practitioners that keep me on the wellness track!
Speaking of the title, Crazy Sexy. I bet you’re wondering where I got the name...
